I went to law school to become a sports agent, but once I began taking trial advocacy courses, I discovered my true calling. There is no greater satisfaction than being a voice for those in need.
I am a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law, a distinction that is only awarded to a small fraction of criminal defense attorneys across the entire state of California.
In the courtroom, my ability to convey crucial information takes another form as I draw the judge or jury in with descriptive and compelling evidence. Additionally, I am known for rigorously cross-examining witnesses to uncover the answers needed for victory.
Being a good attorney is as much about your ability to explain the law to your clients as it is about implementing the legal process in trial. For this reason, I make thorough explanations a top priority. Client education is simply the first step to success.
Though client service and trial acumen are important, strong relations with the judges and opposing counsel are a critical component of a favorable resolution. If you take the chance to see me in trial, you will see this camaraderie and respect come through.
"If you want an attorney you can trust that will always put your rights first and foremost, hire Ty. Best decision I have ever made."
"My son's sentence went from 17 years to under 4 years and NO STRIKE! Ty is an amazing attorney."
"Ty was very professional and knowledgeable and still followed up several times after the case was dismissed. I would recommend Ty to anyone."
"I have already recommended [Ty] to others and do so here also. He was there for me and my family both before and after my case was finished."
"I was wrongly accused and when I met with Ty he was very knowledgeable and prepared me for the whole process."
"In the end, he got my [DUI] charge reduced and saved me. I strongly recommend."
Before branching out to form a firm of my own, I worked as a criminal prosecutor. The accomplishments I attained as a prosecutor were not only personally satisfying — they were invaluable preparation for my role today. After all, in any competition, you must know the opponent you’re up against.
When you’re developing a strategy, you should always be a step ahead of your competition. I’d like to think that my time on both sides of the courtroom allows me to readily do just that. When you look at the extraordinary resolutions I’ve secured for my clients, it’s merely the most logical explanation.
No charges filed.
75% reduction in custody time.
Offer reduced from prison to less than one week in custody.
Charges dropped due to an illegal search.
Offer reduced from three years prison to no custody time.
Charges dismissed with no conviction or punishment.
Case rejected and no charges filed.
As with most things in life, you will make the greatest strides in court when you achieve a sense of balance. I have spent my career calculating this delicate equilibrium not only for myself, but for my clients, as it is imperative that our agendas are in sync when we go to trial.
One of the easiest ways to outgun your opponent is to simply do your homework ahead of time. When I take on a new case, I research it relentlessly before determining how to most effectively present the facts in trial. Then, I outline our strategies and tactics for the courtroom and ensure you’re in on the plan. In essence, this is where the heart of competition begins. The toughest attorneys are typically the ones who have done the most research.
Once the opposing counsel sees we’ve put together an unshakable case, they’re going to be much more likely give up their fight and negotiate. Often, this allows for better resolutions all around. At this point, we’ll evaluate their offers and counter with our own until we settle on a favorable outcome.
Of course, there’s no “one size fits all” approach to criminal defense. I make sure to scrutinize every situation independently and adjust procedures accordingly. At times, this might mean pursuing a winning verdict at all costs. Other times, it might mean settling outside the courtroom entirely. I continually adapt to best serve you.
